Xbox needs a buff

    After using the Xbow for a fair amount of time though I have come to the conclusion that it is pretty good, but it needs a buff.

    First of all, it needs a projectile thats easier to see, I have no idea where my bolts go at the moment and it makes follow up shots almost impossible.

    Second, it needs better velocity, 150M/S is abysmal, it makes hitting targets, especially moving targets stupidly hard.

    I understand that this bow is useable for all classes, but its real niche seems to be infiltrator with stalker cloak, and the ONLY reliable way to get kills like this is with the knife/bow combo, and you might as well use the comissioner for that.

    The Xbow should be better at range, with a better velocity, it already has the slow fire rate, now the shots need to move faster.

    Currently there is almost no point using this over the comissioner, except for the recon darts, it needs a small but meaningful buff.

    Oh and IMO it should always be a 1 hit headshot kill

    the bow is better for the knife combo then the comish IMO since it is silent and does more base damage so its more reliable at point blank vs nanoweave. The 150m/s isn't that bad, I can hit most targets out to about 75m, and its a 2 shot kill.

    But why would you want a knife combo kill weapon? its a crossbow, it could be much more interesting, and we already have the comissioner that does the combo fine

    What would be the point of the commissioner if this gun was equal to it??

    It fills a different role than the commissioner. You probably don't need a crossbow for that role if you are asking this question(unless you ask this question about every single weapon in the game).

    Rumor has it that if you visit Off-Topic Discussion you can still hear him typing...

    no they will leave this one up, since it says the Xbox needs a buff, the play station must be overpowered.
